Be ‘stay’ savvy

Be ‘stay’ savvy

I promised to focus a little on the use of the verb ‘stay’ and its overuse when we can simply use the verb  ‘be.’  As you can see from the various definitions of ‘stay’, we use it for the most part to express the idea of remaining or continuing in a situation or as a temporary living situation/ accommodation.  We do not use it to express the idea of just spending time.  Therefore we don’t say, ‘I like staying with my friends,’ unless you want to say you like sleeping at their houses.  We say, ‘I like being with my friends; spending time with them; hanging out with them.’
